Avenue of the Baobabs stretch around 853 ft long with remaining some 20 - 25 trees about 99 ft in height, of Some 20 - 25 more trees of this species grow in nearby rice field.

Baobab trees, up to 800 years old and locally known as renala means "mother of the forest", are a legacy of the dense tropical forests that once thrived on Madagascar. Baobab trees  did not originally tower in isolation over the sere landscape of scrub but stood in dense forest. Over the years, as the country's population grew, the forests were cleared for agriculture, leaving only the baobab trees, which the locals preserved as much in respect as for their value as a food source and building material.
